THREE BROCHURES IN TOTAL LAUNCHING, FEATURING A BRAND NEW THOMSON FLORIDA BROCHURE, NEW THOMSON COUPLES HOTELS, NEW THOMSON FAMILY RESORTS, PLUS NEW REGIONAL DEPARTURE ROUTES

Leading tour operator, Thomson has today launched three new May Edition Summer 12 brochures; Summer Collection, Faraway Shores and Florida. Following on from sister-brand First Choice’s move to 100% All Inclusive from next summer, Thomson will continue to offer holidays across all boards, from room only in Florida, to all inclusive at its exclusive Sensatori properties.

Due to First Choice’s re-branding, all Florida properties will now be available through Thomson, and to reflect this, a new Florida brochure launches today containing all the top International-drive hotels, villas and Theme Park hotels.

Thomson will continue to add to its exclusive differentiated product offering, with six new Thomson Couples hotels and three new Thomson Family Resorts for next summer. Thomson has also introduced 12 new regional flying routes from next summer, to increase flexibility and choice for customers.

NEW BROCHURE: THOMSON FLORIDA
All First Choice Florida properties have migrated to Thomson and will be included in the brand new Thomson Florida brochure. Featuring top properties, such as the popular Coco Key Hotel with its on-site waterpark, and Lake Buena Vista Resort, which both join Thomson Platinum. The new brochure will also include the same amount of Disney coverage as First Choice, so customers will have the same amount of choice as before. Flying from Edinburgh for the first time and re-introducing the East Midlands route places Thomson, flying on Thomson Airways, as market leading tour operator based on number of departure airports you can fly directly from to Florida.

NEW: SIX ADDITIONS TO THOMSON COUPLES PORTFOLIO
Following the successful launch of Thomson Couples for summer 2011, Thomson is expanding its offering for next summer adding six more properties, bringing the grand total of Couples hotels to 25. These contemporary adult-only properties are all rated 4T or above. All hotels are in great locations across short, mid and long haul destinations, and are ideal for couples looking for a child-free, quality break. New additions to the range from May 2012 will include the 5T Pioneer Beach in Paphos, Cyprus and the 5T Secret St James in Montego Bay, Jamaica with Junior Suite Ocean View rooms as standard. You’ll find the other new Thomson Couples properties in Kos, Madeira, Ibiza and Lanzarote.

MORE FAMILY-FRIENDLY: THREE NEW THOMSON FAMILY RESORTS
Further to the launch of this sub-brand last summer, three more Thomson Family Resorts have been added to the range for next summer. These exclusive hotels are perfect for young families, with a minimum rating of 4T, and come with large family rooms, creches, extensive childcare facilities and entertainment from Thomson Kids’ Clubs, plus extras like pre-bookable Mothercare equipment. The new additions are the 5T CS Salgados in Algarve, the 4T Golden Avenida Suites in Costa Dorada, and the 5T Atlantica Aegean Blue in Rhodes, bringing the total number in the range to 18.

MORE REGIONAL ROUTES: NEW FLIGHTS TO PORTO SANTO AND CAPE VERDE
In total Thomson will be launching 12 new regional flying routes for next summer including new routes from Manchester to exclusive destination, Porto Santo and Cayo Santa Maria in Cuba, and Birmingham to Boa Vista in Cape Verde. These extra flights to Boa Vista mean Thomson Airways will be stepping up and offering six flights per week to Cape Verde. Customers in Scotland will also be able to fly directly to Cancun and Florida from Edinburgh, bringing the total number of UK long haul departure airports to eight – more than any other UK airline, offering customers increased choice and flexibility. Other new regional flights include:
